British artist Liz Davis' concerns are with the devastation of the natural world.
The major part of this exhibition features an installation in the basement gallery in which a badger skeleton is treated with the reverence we usually associate with human beings. This wild animal is beautifully decorated and placed with care in a reworked burial site so as to indicate the rituals of the ancients. In the upper gallery is a related series of miniature coffins, each solemnly contains the remains of the beloved wildlife recreated by Davis in different representations. Alongside these beastly sculptures which are beautifully bejeweled, Davis continues a series of paintings whose subject is influenced by the ground beneath our feet as a record of the lives and deaths of animals, birds and insects through traces and remains, exposed through layers upon layers of delicate glaze.
